This Tuesday, May 13th at 6pm, join MomCom Life and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Texas Capitol Building! The #BringOurGirlsBack Rally will bring awareness of the abducted Nigerian school girls. Be sure to wear red & bring an umbrella!
What’s happening in Nigeria?
Three weeks ago dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.
This week, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, along with Girl Rising, organized a Google + Hangout to help galvanize communities worldwide to take action. Together, they launched an “Action Pack” with tips and tools on how women around the world can bring attention to this important news story. With that in mind, MomCom Life & Smart Girls will be taking to the streets of Austin to “walk the walk” right here in Texas.
Join us. Help make this story a headline.
Be sure to RSVP on the Austin Rally’s Facebook page!
